Reuters - Goldman to unveil trading turnaround plans

Goldman Sachs Group will detail plans to turn around performance at its core bond-trading unit next month after unusual pressure from large investors frustrated by vague explanations of its troubles, people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Reuters reports that the move is a break from tradition at Wall Street’s pre-eminent bank, which usually gives its investors little information about how it makes money.

That was the case last month, when Goldman reported a stunning 40% decline in bond-trading revenue, much worse than rivals like Morgan Stanley and JPMorgan Chase.

Goldman Chief Financial Officer Marty Chavez said Goldman had trouble “navigating” the markets during a conference call to discuss second-quarter results on July 18, but did not offer specifics.

That, and his vagueness over the causes of Goldman’s problems, unsettled some investors.
